St George's Hall is widely regarded as one of the finest neo-classical buildings in the world and is a Grade I listed building. It was reopened in 2007 by Prince Charles after a £23m refurbishment programme.
St Georges Hall really is the beating heart of the city. Located just outside the massive Lime Street Station, the old hall has sat and watched the city transform into the cultural hub it is today.
Built in the early 1800s as a space for music festivals and the Civil and Crown courts, the hall has always been at the heart of community life in the city. Over 25,000 people gathered outside the Hall when John Lennon was killed, and in excess of 65,000 witnessed Liverpool's spectacular European Capital of Culture People’s Opening in 2008.
On the east side of the hall, between it and the railway station, is St George's Plateau and on the west side are St John's Gardens. Take a stroll through the gardens on a sunny day in view of our cities beautiful central library and world famous museum, or just walk along street and take in the breath taking architecture.
Throughout the year they host free events, exhibitions, tours and talks, corporate events and weddings both large and small in a selection of beautiful rooms for hire and packages to suit all budgets.
Please remember, when major events take place in the Great Hall, the viewing gallery may be closed.
